The Bicarbonator pressure blast cabinet, model PSB 2342-600, is designed for use with sodium bicarbonate media for cleaning and paint stripping. Soda media is soft, making it ideal for cleaning without altering or etching delicate surfaces. Soda media is water-soluble, non-toxic, and non-hazardous, simplifying its removal and disposal. Parts with internal cavities are easily rinsed clean. This model is for intermittent blasting, up to two hours per day. For higher-production soda blasting, Aerolyte can configure a pressure cabinet to suit your operation.
